As regular readers know, we do four print sales a year, along with the seasons. I'm happy to report that plans for our next one—for Winter 2010-11—are coming along nicely. We're going to be offering two prints by an old-friend-I've-never-met, landscape photographer Charles Cramer.
I'm a longtime fan. I first knew Charlie as an accomplished dye transfer printer, one of whose pictures I used on the cover of an issue of the magazine I edited at the time (Photo Techniques, October/November 1997). The cover, which featured the shot shown above, was absolutely gorgeous—one of my favorites of the 36 covers I was responsible for. Later, in 2000, we published a portfolio of Charlie's work.
Charlie—who, like Ansel Adams was, is a very accomplished classical pianist (and I mean concert-level, as his CD attests)—is a master digital printer; he teaches printing workshops at the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park (booked up for this year, unfortunately). He himself shoots with a Phase One medium-format digital back. We're going to be offering two of his most beautiful and popular pictures for less than half of what you could get them for otherwise.
I'll be writing more about Charlie and his work soon, and I'll let you know the start date of the sale as far in advance as possible (that part hasn't been settled yet). In the meantime, here's Charlie's website. Have a look to whet your appetite.
